The most extensive coverage has been Frontline’s, WHEN KIDS GET LIFE, a powerful 90 minute documentary that details the lives of our Colorado juvenile LWOP. (Accessed through PBS.org/ type in Frontline) Thanks to Pendulum’s efforts, Colorado is the only state that has lowered juvenile LWOP. Currently, no child can serve more than 40 years without an opportunity for parole. That is far too much time, but it’s a start. We were also instrumental in the idea behind Colorado’s Juvenile Clemency Board – the first of its kind in the nation. There are several other states looking to us to help them provide a similar board as an interim step. Currently, we are coordinating the efforts for a Battered Kids Clemency Project, and following the Supreme Court’s June ruling on the constitutionality of juvenile life without parole, will introduce legislation to bring Colorado into compliance with the ruling. We at the Pendulum Foundation believe that the only real prison is the prison of the heart. Our mission is to physically, emotionally and spiritually free all of our young men and women whose childhoods have been lost, and who have been thrown away in Colorado’s prison system.
